Absolutely...

Re: To Repair or Not

This is a 7750 movement watch isn't it?

I'd get it settled whilst well within warranty. For me a chronograph function which is unreliable is no good at all.

The mirror and the light by Hilary Mantel. I am not gripped in the way I was with the first two books in the trilogy.

Re: My Desire for a GMT

Danged right sir!

Any reason is a good enough reason.

Here am I in GMT land with relatives in Wyoming and Utah so all my second time zone watches are set to Mountain Time, -7 hours.

Hey, it's still Thursday with you.........

Re: How durable is the titanium bracelet on the C60 Elite 1000?

Is there a bracelet which doesn't scratch? Are you coming from unhappy experience of titanium bracelets on other brands?

Re: Nearly new

The main sales have always tended to be January and July, though they occasionally drip feed a few watches into the clearance section, and there are vouchers and short promotions throughout the year. Ha. You might learn to recognise the behaviour involved in a feeding frenzy :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:...

Re: C60 Elite 1000 / GMT owners, does it bother you that....

Yeah, i don't own the watch in question but my life just changed. I need to go back to fundamentals. Fundamentally then, the word is " perspective " Also the fact that the 45 minute tick on the insert seems to align with the 46th minute marker, nearly :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: And another thing;...

. I've also never received a dead watch on arrival.
Well, at the point of stating the obvious, I expect we all find that to be a very unusual situation. :-k :-k :-k :-k

Re: Opinions Please - C65 Trident - Bracelet or Strap

I'm the bracelet fanboy here! Scooped the blue handcranker in the sale, searched the bay of E for a blue stingray strap but actually, it's the bracelet all the way. When I slip the watch and bracelet on my wrist I see myself arriving at an airport of long ago, an aerodrome quite possibly, and taking...
